Kickstart Your Body’s Natural Healing Process
We use Kinesio taping to assist co-ordination and movement. Also known as Fascial Movement Taping (FMT), Kinesio taping supports muscle movement while allowing tired, overused muscles to relax. It also helps in reducing pain and inflammation. You may have seen many an athlete on TV sporting Kinesio taping because sports physicians have adopted this method of treatment to enhance rehabilitation and athletic performance.
This is not be confused with traditional sports taping which is used strictly for stabilisation and support. Kinesio taping is non-restrictive and allows for full range of motion.
FMT's revolutionary technique utilises "longitudinal anatomy" for preventative maintenance, to treat pain, and Edema.
As Kinesio taping is so effective in reducing swelling and inflammation, it is also a perfectly safe treatment for low back pain, upper back tension and headaches which occur during pregnancy. It is latex free, the adhesive is 100% acrylic and heat activated. We have specific postural and supportive taping techniques to reduce stress in the back and improve posture.
What Is Kinesio Taping and How Does It Work?
Kinesio taping is a 100% latex-free, adhesive tape which activates the neurological and circulatory systems.
The taping of the skin gently lifts the tissue above the muscle improving the flow of nutrient-filled blood and other bodily fluids.
Medical practitioners and athletes choose Kinesio taping to improve posture, correct movement patterns, relieve pain and prevent injuries.
